Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.

I missed you all last week, it was a busy week for me and I was not feeling well. This week has been much better. I'm enjoying my summer break! I set on the porch and have coffee in the morning, I just love mornings outside, just always so peaceful! I hope you all had a great week and are enjoying this beautiful weather.

Today for my pink I have this pretty cross stitched bell pull. I got this at a thrift store and it's just perfect for my sewing room. It looks so sweet on the back of my door especially since I keep my sewing room door shut. No kitties or puppies in this room.

Some closups of the little stitching girls.

This week I went to a scrapbook party and made these pretty cards. A nice evening first we have dinner in a little cafe in town then we go to back room and do some crafting. It's always nice to get out and do some creating.

A few closeups.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I'm looking forward to my visits with you all. Have a wonderful week.

Hello and welcome to my Wedding Party hosted by my sweet friend Stephanie of Angelic Accents. This is the second year for Stephanie to host this fun event. It's always so much fun to look at wedding pictures.

I'm also linking up with Beverly's Pink Saturday because there's lots of pink in this post. Stop by to see Beverly to get a list of all the other participants.

The picture above is one of my wedding samplers that I cross stitched years ago and a pretty little tray that I purchased from a friend Judy.

Below is another wedding sampler that I cross stitched.

Our wedding picture, we married forty years ago this past Feb. 6th.

The page below is out of a scrapbook that my mother made for me. A clipping of my wedding gown that was in a wedding magazine.

My bridemaids were dressed in velvet (which I have always loved)fur muffs, hats.

Me putting on lipstick in front of my mother's mirror just before leaving for the church.

My flower girl and ring bearer.

Cutting our wedding cake.

My bouquet, I have always loved daisies so I had them with white roses.

Below is my parents wedding picture, they got married two days before Pearl Harbor was attacked.

Below is their wedding certificate, I'm so happy that I found this in my mother's things. I treasure it.

Below is my Aunt and Uncle's wedding picture. He was my Mother's brother and the only one in the family that had a big wedding. In those years and at the time of WWII not many people were having big weddings.

Thank you so much for stopping by to share in all the wedding fun. I enjoyed sharing my wedding pictures with you.

Have a wonderful week. Shirl

Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

I was having computer problems and my computer was over three years old so I thought it was time for a new one. My husband and I went out to dinner tonight and then went shopping for a new laptop computer for me. I bought an HP and I'm very happy with it but I have no pictures in it yet.

Found this pretty vintage Victorian image above on the internet then went to some of my old posts and took a few pics from them. Sorry that I have no new pinks for you this week but I will try and get some new pics in here by next week.

Next pic was taken in the corner of my teatime/cupcake guest bedroom.

My cute little embroidered bunnies. I hope to have some of these listed in my Etsy shop soon.

My pretty little peony bird nest. I will be listing some of these also. As soon as school gets out and I have some creative time.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I'm still trying to figure out my new laptop computer, my husband took over my old laptop and is already installing his WWII war games on it. I'll have to get all my pics off there before they get lost in all that action. LOL

Have a wonderful week!!!! Pink hugs!!!! Shirl
